DIY Tea Towel Art
It’s amazing what you rediscover when you unpack moving boxes. Even though I have currently been moved into our vacation townhome for several months, there are still a ton of packed boxes in the garage. This is because these particular boxes were meant to go to a storage unit until a decision can be made as to where our next home will be. Somehow they ended up here instead of there and I finally got sick and tired of tripping over the clutter. Originally my idea was to unpack a couple of boxes each day, but then Organizing Fever struck – it’s a real thing. Before I knew it I had 21 boxes all unpacked inside the house! Crap was everywhere – kitchen counters, dining room table, living room floor – everywhere. I cleaned, purged and donated lots of clutter like it was my job. Get rid of the stuff!
Then…I got the phone call that my dad had taken a fall and badly broke his femur. Shattered is probably a better word. So, even though my house was in upheaval, Honey Bee and I got in the car and raced 2 ½ hours away. My dad has already had two surgeries and will now need to be transferred to a specialized rehabilitation facility where he can get physical therapy several hours each and every day. Suffice it to say there is a whole lot more to this story which I will share at a later date. Just know that this has been a very difficult time for our family.
Anyway…back to the DIY tea towel art. As I was unpacking boxes I found this new tea towel that I had forgotten about.
I truly got lucky with this .50 cent art canvas garage sale purchase. Only the outer plastic covering was stained. The canvas was in pristine condition.

Iron and steam all of the wrinkles and fold marks out of the tea towel. Wrap the tea towel around the canvas and staple into place.
